I joined but I am disapointed by the amount of spam posts on the page.

Finally, that one was unveiled at the AGM. Combined effort, SC/ASC

Now comes the question. Which to go to? CJ 2013 with my scouts or Moot 2013 just for myself.

Both are such great opertunities.

Go to Brownsea in 2011.

Seems a bit stupid to organize a CJ in 2013 as Scouts Canda in participating equally with ASC in the MOOT 2013...the left hand... :lol:

Uh, ASC was awarded Moot 2013 independently of SC. What I mean to say is that ASC is a separate scouting organization and SC *didn't* apply for the moot.

Sorry for the technicality, but it represents a falsehood that SC is actively supporting the Rover Program, which until this Rover Award consultation showed *no* interest in the age group.

I still wonder where my 120 dollars of reg goes. Certainly not to the Rover program.

I would tend to disagree with you MAKR in view of the fact that I was at the AGM and saw the presentation of the Rover Moot 2013. They are definitely in this together. I can tell you that $45 goes to National Fees and $15 to SC Insurance. You would have to ask your |Council where the rest goes :lol:

The entire bid process had nothing to do with SC.

http://www.scoutsducanada.ca/documents/ ... 230510.pdf

From May 21st/2010


There may be a passing support of SC on this, but it's entirely a bandwagon jump. Scouts Canada did not bid on hosting the 2013 moot. ASC did.

In fact, I can barely find anything more then a passing mention of the 2013 Moot on the Scouts.ca webage. Even then it's buried in a .pdf i had to do a search for.

Wierd Mark. After all the tan-tam atr the AGM Dinner about the Noot 2013...certainly had the impression that SC was part of it completely. BUT after surfing the website I didn't find any information under YOUTH/ROVERS or under Canadian Events. Gonna ask Ian about that later this morning when they open op for business. It's 6 AM in Ottawa right now :lol: Doubt that anyone is in yet...except maybe John Rietveld of Barry Hardaker ;) They usually get in very early in the morning.
